Facebook iOS app overhaul to be built by former Apple employees?

About a month ago New York Times Bits heard rumors that Facebook was working on a completely new, real iOS app. Not just an app pulling in HTML5 webpages through an app frontend. The rumor is now heating up, according to a report by Value Walk:

According to sources, Facebook Inc has hired a team of former Apple Inc. employees to completely redesign the Facebook iPhone app. These sources say, the app will get a “major code overhaul” rather than the normal update.

I was happy that Facebook was updating their app, but if this report is true, it’s even better than I thought. Who better to fix this broken app than former Apple employees?
